Your device DOES NOT SUPPORT PIXEL SHADER mode. You can't run TDS with your system.

You have an older INTEL chipset.

Google for your card, and read the specs.
Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller

From what I see on the specsheet, this won't run the game.

Also read the FAQ on Dualcore CPU chips, and make the recommended changes to the Affinity to run the game, but without a pixel-shader function on the Vcard/Chip/onboard chip, the game won't run anyhow.
